    Public K-12 Education: Conservative or Liberal?

    What would you prefer for your children, conservative or liberal K-12 Education in public schools?Do not forget that after liberal "education" in public schools many children are illiterate and know nothing. BTW most of wealthy people ( democrats and liberals too ) send their children only to conservative schools. Please explain your choice and do not forget that too liberal "education" in public schools has downgraded America to one of the lowest places among other western countries.

    Is this why you hate liberals so much, did your parents send you to one of those schools?

    as it is currently structured in the United States it is very much a product of the Left. decision making authority is placed in the hands of government technocrats who are unionized and protected from public pressure. people pay irrespective of consumption.

    Mitch Daniels in Indiana, meanwhile, has just shifted education more "right" ward by utilizing a voucher system to put decision making authority more into the hands of the consumers, who will pay extra if they wish to consume extra.

    It is clearly a better way as so-called "liberal education" which has destroyed the American Education System. Thanks Liberals kids know everything about sex, drugs, music, dancing,alcohol, marijuana etc. , but nothing about math, writing or physics.

    Guys,

    please stop the Liberal Tradition and discuss the Post, not the Poster.

    What kinda of school did you go to because I came out and knew a large amount about the three topics you mentioned and then some and I went to a public school.

    Dear God! Kids are learning about music? Oh the humanity!

    well, the question becomes: what is the justifying purpose of having the state take money from people in order to set up an educational system. if it is to produce an educated citizenry capable of competently executing it's self-governing duties and maintaining a decently high level of production.... then you have to ask at what point the return on the humanities justifies further investment.

    frankly, i don't even think it should be a decision the state should be making; the role of the state should properly be to establish necessary minimimums tied to the two intents discussed above, and then let parents free to decide on the specifics.

    A broad base of knowledge is very necessary for a person to be properly education and have enough of an information base to draw from in order to approach a new subject, in my opinion.
